Something happened last night. We had friends over and of course you know I had to put on a performance – snorts. Hey, it’s what I do. The topic turned to my blog. We all took turns reading past articles from it and snorting – alcohol may have been involved with the humans – snorts. Our friends made the comment that *I* could not be serious. What? Is that a dare? Cause you know it sounded like a dare to this little oinker. So today, I will be serious. This post will be about something that happened to me and mom this morning. You just read and see. Cough-cough-oink-snort- here comes my serious side. Stop laughing. I’m being serious.
This morning instead of me getting mom up for breakfast, she woke me up for a change. It was early. I couldn’t understand why. She told me that she had to show me something that was special. Something without electronics, without technology, with just me and her alone. I just looked at her and yawned but hey I was game. We walked to the kitchen and I sat on the floor yawning while mom fixed her a cup of coffee. Then we did something strange. We went out the back door of the Hotel Thompson. The back door leads us to my backyard… my kingdom that I like to call it.
We sat down on the deck, mom cross-legged and I climbed up in her lap. I kept looking at her waiting for an explanation. It was dark out here overlooking my magical backyard and it was kind of chilly. I couldn’t see anything but darkness. Mom told me, “Wait for it Bacon.” Wait for what? I sat and continue to listen. That’s when I noticed the sounds.
I could hear crickets. I could hear frogs near the swamp. I could hear a dog barking in the neighborhood. I could hear Journalist Rocky the Squirrel chatting away with his family in the trees. I even started hearing birds chirp. WOW – I’ve never heard these noises so close before. Then I started to hear a rooster a couple of doors down. I looked at mom in complete awe and amazement. She told me, “It’s not done yet Bacon. Keep waiting for it.” Again this wait for it. Wait for what? What could be that interesting to get up at this ungodly hour? Then there was a shift in the atmosphere. Something changed but I couldn’t put my hoof on it.
I slowly got up out of mom’s lap and walked to the edge of the deck overlooking my backyard kingdom. That’s when I saw it. I looked at mom and she looked at me. The blackness of the night started slowly fading away. A white tinge was started to peak out from the night. It was slow at first but as we watched minute by minute it started getting lighter outside. Before I knew it, the night time had disappeared and the daylight had appeared out of nowhere. WOW! I could see my magical backyard in full light. I looked at mom, did a little wiggle and pleaded, “Do it again mom!” I went back and snuggled up in mom’s lap again. We sat there for a long time, mom drinking her coffee petting me and I looking at the amazement of another great day.

Love this! We all need to do that more often. Thanks for the reminder you smart little piggy! Blessings!
06/27/2014 at 9:09 am
aaww thanks my friend. It really was a wonderfully special time this morning. XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 9:03 am
Brother that are the BESTEST moments ever. We do that sometimes too and it always feels as if we would be the only living beings …just a mom, a pup and a coffee ( counts a coffee for a living thing when it works reanimating?) That’s wonderful, I agree!
06/27/2014 at 9:10 am
It was so awesome brother! Can you believe that was the first time that I ‘stopped and watched the sunrise’? It was great and so beautiful coming up over the trees and the light gently wrapping itself around us. Awesome! XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 9:18 am
A beautiful moment indeed sweet Bacon and you know what it will never happen again..that unique moment….just you and mum and the start of a new day….I love those moments..the stillness the sound of the world waking up and the soft cuddly fur friend who watches with you 🙂 it’s art my friend and it costs nothing but time 🙂 hugs and loves Fozziemum xxx
06/27/2014 at 10:38 am
It is special and wonderful. We had a great bonding moment this morning. And then mom went out to go to work and found another special friend. I’ve been watching him all morning for mom. He’s actually flying around here and there in the backyard. I think he might make it. He’s a toughie… like me 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 6:15 pm
I saw that my friend ..I love a toughie!! I am glad you had that lovely moment with mum..too cold now for that here 🙂 hugs and loves Fozziemum xxx
06/27/2014 at 11:25 am
SERIOUSLY BACON IN THE FUTURE YOU MIGHT SUGGEST TO YOUR MOM THAT SHE SHARE THIS SPECIAL EARLY MORNING RITUAL WITH HER SHADOW. GEEZ LOUISE UP BE FOR NOON
IS UNHEARD OF IN MY WORLD..WELL THAT IS UNLESS THERE IS A GRACIOUS AMOUNT OF FOOD INVOLVED.
HUGS MADI YOUR BFFF
06/27/2014 at 11:34 am
Tell me about it my friend. It was early. But it was a priceless and cherished moment spent with mom. XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 11:32 am
The title of this one cracked me up, I fear. But, seriously, Mommy is a sweetie—as are you, dear Bacon. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs from Ecuador,
06/27/2014 at 11:35 am
Thank you my dear friend 🙂 You have a fabulously snorting good time of a weekend as well! XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 12:45 pm
Oh Bacon this post almost made me shed a teat – why? Because this is how my Mom and I spend almost every morning around here…..sometimes we’re WAY earlier than the sunrise but we still celebrate the stars we see – then there are the magic mornings with the sunrise – just the two of us – it’s a special time for Moms and Pigs and/or kitties/whatever to START another day together. A reminder of how special day day is…………I love that you did that with your Mom!!!!!!
06/27/2014 at 1:08 pm
It was great! I can’t believe that we’ve never done that before. It was really special to share that moment with mom. I never knew how the daylight got here before. It was awesome! I hope to do it again soon. Mom says she has to show me the sunset too. Fantastic! XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 1:42 pm
Sunsets are pretty cool too but sometimes there’s noise from the neighborhood and cars, etc. but in the morning when it’s DARK and QUIET it’s special!

WOW. Wish you hadn’t done that. Now I’m gonna have to be serious. Sometime. Not anytime soon, mind you. And I certainly can’t top that. So I won’t try. And, uh, I don’t get up that early. So thanks for telling me what I’ve been missing!
Your canine companion, Stuart
06/27/2014 at 2:10 pm
Snorticles. Life is way too short to be serious my friend – so mommy says and so I second. Live free and play hard. This was just a moment of seriousness that hit me this morning – only because I was challenged that *I* couldn’t be serious. I’ve done it now. The moment has passed – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 3:20 pm
Wow, Bacon! This was SERIOUSLY one of the best stories ever! What a wonderful way to start the day! Have a great weekend, sweet little friend! 🙂 xx Roxy & Tigerlino ❤
06/27/2014 at 3:31 pm
aaww thanks my friends. It was the best way for me and mom to start our day. It was great! Have a great weekend! XOXO – Bacon
06/27/2014 at 4:46 pm
This is seriously beautiful. Once Mom brought me out in the dark morning to see a meteor shower. I barked at her and we had to come inside before I woke the whole neighborhood.
Love and licks,
06/27/2014 at 5:11 pm
I highly recommend this my friend. It was awesome! XOXO – Bacon

I have always been a morning person. I believe there is something magical about the very start of a brand new day! Just think Bacon, it is nighttime here when it is morningtime here! ❤
06/28/2014 at 8:40 am
My piggy mind is blown from that Auntie Sharon. I was enjoying a sunrise and you had a sunset. Wow! XOXO – Bacon
06/28/2014 at 6:41 am
We make the most of morning hence the wake up call to humans for 4:30am maybe 5am depending if distracted by the wildlife 🙂
06/28/2014 at 8:43 am
Snorts. This is definitely something I want to try again. I would also like to see a sunset. XOXO – Bacon
06/28/2014 at 5:55 pm
I like your serious side….that was a wonderful story! I think morning is the most beautiful time of day…..but unfortunately I can’t often drag myself out of bed to enjoy it!
06/28/2014 at 7:11 pm
Snorts. It was a great morning. I have to do it again. XOXO – Bacon
